Reactions to light interruptions

  1. I have a plant that's been under 11/13 for about a month. She's got quite a few hairs, and is well on her way.... but...

    accidentally let some light get to her.

    So is flowering like a process that gets going and cant be stopped (please please)?

    Or will this stop ALL budding?

    But of course its prob somewhere in the middle.

    All answers appreciated.
  2. More detail. How long did this light shine on her?

    It won't stop budding, the problem is making her go hermie.
  3. the worse thing is that itll go back to veg but i doubt that, you should be fine.. as long as it wasnt a strong light and if it wasnt for a great deal of time when your lights were off
  4. what would be a great deal of time??? I have entered at night and turned on lights to get some stuff out of the grow room.... I have a hermie but it was a hermie before the light disturbing incident...

    Whats a general guideline besides absolute dark??? For how long can you turn on a light during night period and not fuck it completely???

    Currently on my first grow
    4x39 daylight Osram Fluoros hung up in chains, some old school twist, jeje.
    4 Indicas
    6 Sativas
    .5 g/L of "triple 17 plus" (17-17-17 N-P-K and some micrconutes)
    .5 g/L of "nutriflor" (15-30-15 N-P-K)
    35 days 12-12
  5. The light was like indirect, semi-blocked single bulb incandescent...nothing strong. And it was exposed for about 2.5 hours past its normal "sleep" time.

    I have heard that the amount of light plants can ignore is related to how strong their light source is (plants flowering under street lights b/c the sun is so bright...anyone else heard that?). I have 2x 70w hps (6400 lumens a piece) security lights rigged together and only one plant.

    She's 41 inches, about 3 months old and it's sativa.
  6. Not quite.
    Messed up light periods are a known cause of hermie-forming.

    I'm not saying your plant turned hermie on you!
    But it just might. I don't know the odds.
  7. Don't let it happen again.. That's all you can do.. And Keep a keen eye out for little boy balls growing beneath your girl flowers.. But don't worry ! you shouldn't have any as long as you don't make that a habit.. once and I'd say your good...
  8. get a "garden safe" light. It's a green bulb that you can put into a lamp so you can work in the room during the night cycle.
